Not so spooky decor

Still need decorating ideas for Halloween? How about an old time feel for your festivities? Classic touch, fun but not really spooky, and if you are really good you can find white pumpkins to make ghost jack-o-lanterns.

A rainy day...

It is quiet and rainy in Japan but that doesn't stop it from still looking stately and impressive.

They say it is haunted...

The magnificent Hollywood Tower Hotel was the place to be and be seen in the 30's... After a fateful lightning storm on Halloween Night in 1939, though, it hasn't quite been the same...

Desktop: Hollywood and Vine

Hollywood and Vine, the one and only... Well, Disney style...

Antique clutter

This stuff hasn't moved since Oct. 31 1939, the infamous day the Hollywood Tower Hotel was struck by lightning. You can find it in the cellar's maintenance area, which doubles are a photo pickup area for those crazy enough to try to ride into the Twilight Zone...

Desktop: On the Boardwalk

There are still some lingering signs of summer around here so why not bring back a taste of summer for another week? This week's Desktop is on the boardwalk in Paradise Pier - Sideshow Shirts has humorous signage and California Screamin' roars by overhead every minute or so...

After a few minor technical issues we're back! This time we're looking at the lamps near the Flame Tree Barbecue. There are all sorts of neat, yet slightly unnerving, themes in the seating area outside. They all seem to focus on predators and prey, such as this one with an anteater trying to get some lunch...
